About melissa

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired preschool teacher who is embarking on a new career as a vet tech.My school is online so I am home most of the day. I have a nice size home that is dog friendly and a large fenced in yard where dogs have full access. I also have a large basement where dogs can play if it is raining outside. We are a fairly active bunch, but also have quality down time. I have a room that dogs are aloud on the funiture. we give treats, hugs and lots of love to all animals.

Please note that while I love all dogs I do require that all dogs be up to date on shots, be on some flea preventive and be neutered or spayed.

Also all overnight bookings are based on a 24 hour period, if the stay goes over that I may need to add some additional costs. This will be discussed before any bookings are made so everyone is in agreement.

Great stay! Felt really great about Melissa and her family. Thank you!
Melissa did a great job taking care of our dog. He has a bit of anxiety sometimes, but was completely happy and fine when we picked him up. She was responsive to all of our messages and questions.
Melissa is 2-for-2! So happy we found someone who will care for Marcy when she cannot come with.
Melissa was great with Marcy - A six-year old puppy mill schnauzer who has only been 'free' four months. House is great and yard were great too. Will 100% use Melissa again.
We dropped our dog Maggie off at Melissa G's Sat morning and picked her up Sunday evening. We received a video of her playing with the other dogs. Maggie is a rescue who shy's away from people's attention. Maggie warmed up to Melissa and made herself at home. Maggie also ate which she rarely does while we're away. When we picked our dog up she greeted us but was not over the top jumping which indicated to us she had a good time. Maggie came home happy and tired.
